Introducing our cover version of “Holland 1945″ by Neutral Milk Hotel. Many thanks to Under the Gun for the great write-up. We debuted this version of the song last night onstage at New York City’s Mercury Lounge, and by some strange coincidence, on the very same evening, Stephen Colbert chose to play the original version of “Holland 1945″ at the ending of his TV show. Spooky!
